Question about Timex Expedition® Outdoor Casual Crown Set Combo 48271 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Hour hand incorrectly positioned

I have owned the timex Expedition outdoor casual watch for about 2 years. I have not had to change the battery. For no good reason, the hour hand is in the wrong position. For example, When it is 1:00 the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is midway between the 1 and 2. My watch has not incurred any significant trauma. I was wondering why this occurred, what it would take to fix it, and if the fix would affect the 100m water resistance. Also, by the way, if I do need to change the battery, will my 100m water resistance no longer be good. Is there a phone number where I can talk to a Timex customer service person? Thanks for any help you can give me with this peculiar problem. Jim

    Thanks for the rapid reply. Are you sure that I can't take it apart by myself? I've taken a lot of watches out of their cases before. Of course I would have the problem of needing to get a new gasket.

I 'm facing difficulty in adjusting the alarm with the Timex Expedition Outdoor Casual Combo 84601 Wrist Watch

from the time mode, press the mode button/lower left button until it reaches the alarm, then press and hold the lower right button which is the "set" button, until the seconds blinks, use again the mode button to choose what are you going to change, (note: the digits that are blinking is changeable using the upper right button) if your done, just press the "set" button/lower right button once.
i hope i had been helped you.


If you have the crown in the first click position (date set position) the date set wheel is most likely damaged. Otherwise, if it does not change in 24 hours, it is the date wheel itself that is damaged.

This happens in all watches over time, as even quartz watches must technically be serviced every 3-5 years. 90% of manufacturers quote this as the standard service rate for quartz and mechanical watches.

If this watch has sentimental value, and you will want to contact a local Certified Master Horologist or Certified Quartz Technician about replacing the movement. Replacing Timex movements is generally more expensive than purchasing a new watch.

If the watch is still in warranty, you may consider contacting Timex about replacing the watch free of charge at: [email protected]

    Timex Expedition Hour-hand off

    Your watch's hour hand is a bit loose or hour wheel skipped a few teeth and now is not in correct engagement. To solve this you need to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help as you don't have knowledge and specific tools to carry out repairs. Any attempts to solve this without special tools and knowledge will definetely damage your watch.

    Rate, please.

    Not again . . .

    Pushing all the buttons at the same time you resets the digital functions. You'll have to reset the time and date, but it will all work again. I don't know why the watch freezes up, but pushing all the buttons at least resets it. I like my watch and this quirk is an annoyance, but it's livable after finding this solution.
